Isaiah’s Life Plan

Isaiah and I were sitting on the couch this morning and Isaiah started to tell me about his long term life goals. This is what he said:

Mommy, when I get big, I want to do what Daddy does. (I asked him if he meant be a pastor) Yeah… and be a Daddy!

I would be the bestest Daddy in the whole world. If the son said, “I want to go to the carnival.” I would say, “Yes. Maybe tonight or maybe tomorrow night.” And if my son said said, “I want to go to the Play Museum.” I would say, “Maybe tonight or maybe later.” And if my son said, “I want to buy a cool ornament for the Christmas tree.” I would say, “Yes.”

I’m going to have 4 kids: 2 boys and 2 girls. And I’m going to name them John, Zachery, Chloe and Leah. And that will be good, because we already have a Leah.

And Mommy, what do you think Leah will do to her children? I think she will treat them like I’m going to treat mine.

And I’m going to be a train driver and a gold collector, a builder and all the cool stuff. And be what Daddy does and go to the gym and even be a wrestler.

His Father’s Son

Look at those faces! I love how this picture shows Chris and Isaiah making the exact same concentrating face.

Isaiah doesn’t just look like his dad. He wants to be like him too. He saw Chris wearing a tie, so he told me how when he was big like Daddy, he could wear ties too. I showed him a little suit with a tie that we have for him and he was excited that he had a tie too… except he called it a scarf.

The other goal he had was to get an A-shirt (“wife-beater” for the non-PC people) like he sees Daddy wear. We happened to have a little kid size one, so I found it for him. He loved it so much that he practically had a meltdown when he had to take it off for his shower. Especially when I informed him that it needed to be washed and couldn’t be re-donned immediately after his bath. The situation was only resolved when I promised to get him a whole pack of white shirts like Daddy’s next time we went to the store. So now he is the proud owner of 4 wife-beater/A-shirts! And he must be wearing one at all times to achieve true happiness. And all because they are what Daddy wears.

I wonder what it feels like to be somebody’s hero? I guess I’ll go ask Chris.
